Fellowships & Assistantships
Additional information on graduate funding opportunities can be found at the University's
Financial Aid page, or the Graduate School's Assistantships page.
- The Peter I. Neathery Fellowship may be awarded competitively each year to up to four qualified graduate students.
- The CyberCorps Scholarship for Service offers full scholarships to qualified students in return for government service after
graduation. U.S. citizenship or permanent residency is required.
- The Information Assurance Scholarship Program offers full scholarships to qualified students in return for serving the Department
of Defense after graduation. U.S. citizenship is required.
- Graduate Assistantships are offered by the Department to a limited number of graduate students. Graduate
assistants work a total of 20 hours per week to support departmental teaching, lab,
and other needs. The appointment provides a stipend and tuition & fee waiver for the
academic year, but it does not include summer support. To be considered for a graduate
assistantship, your graduate program application must be received by the end of February
for the Fall semester, or the end of November for Spring.
- Research Assistantships are available through research faculty and are supported by external grants. They
provide stipends and waivers comparable to those from Graduate Assistantships, but
duties depend on specific research projects. Please contact individual faculty for further information.
